Hi Everyone,

I was browsing through SAP training site and found out about new HANA Certification.

SAP has launched a new SAP HANA Certification "C_HANAIMP131" called SAP Certified Application Associate (Edition 2013)

It seems it is an update to original Application Associate Certification "C_HANAIMP_1".

This new C_HANAIMP131 certification covers new topics areas.

Comparison of  C_HANAIMP_1 & C_HANAIMP131 Certifications with topic areas and their weightage:

C_HANAIMP_1 WeightageC_HANAIMP131 Weightage
Reporting> 12%Data Provisioning> 12%
Data Modeling> 12%Security and Authorization8% - 12%

Data modeling - Attribute views< 8%
Deployment scenarios of SAP HANA< 8%
SAP HANA Live & Rapid Deployment Solutions for SAP HANA< 8%
Passing Percentage - 66%Passing Percentage - 61%

It is clearly visible from the above comparison table that the new certification adds on more topic areas and is heavily focused on Modeling.

The topic areas are now more clear and it will be easy for everyone to identify what exactly they need to study for certification.

New Certification also has less passing percentage at 61% compared to 66% of the original one.

This new certification will surely be harder to pass and will require a good deal of hands on experience as it is covering Advanced Modeling Techniques, Best Practices for SAP HANA, Improving Reporting Performance of Models, Administration of Models and their transportation.

Now we also have separate area for SQLScript and CE Functions.

New topic like HANA Live has also been introduced and more focus on RDS is also there.

Still no XS part.

I really like the way SAP has clearly stated all the required topic areas and is covering Modeling in great detail. I would also like to thank SAP Certification team for this great work.
